Joshua LeBlanc on baseball cards

Outfielder Joshua LeBlanc played four seasons in the Angels organization. In 290 games he hit .250 with 10 HR, 125 RBI and 68 SB. Now a financial advisor at Merrill Lynch in Scottsdale, AZ, he kindly answered my questions about baseball cards.

"When I was younger I collected cards. I had a large binder that was filled with cards. Mainly football cards. I loved the Action Packed cards and my prized card was an Emmitt Smith rookie card. My favorite baseball card that I had was a Jose Cruz card. I was and still am an Astros fan.I will say my fondest memory was in 2006 I was in Rancho playing and a gentleman came to me to sign cards. He showed me the new Topps Bowman card and I said, “I have not seen this one.” He asked if I wanted some and I said yes. It was an unexplainable feeling to actually have a card and people wanting you to sign them."
